Quidam - Alone Together (2007)

The fifth album from this Polish band.

The band was a sextet on this album with a lineup of drums, guitars, flute, bass, keyboards, percussion and vocals.
Three guest musicians contributed with saxophones, zither and female vocals.

The band was again a male vocals only band after their first three albums as a female vocals fronted band. The change to male vocals happened on the rather poor previous album, Surrevival from 2005.

The band continues as a neo-prog band on this album. The songs are rather long. The are almost ten minutes long, the majority of the songs here.

The vocals are very good and the guitars also does a great job.

I was happy to see that the band had a full-time flute player. There is not much we hear of the flutes here.

The music is guitars and keyboards based. The sound is rather flat and not that interesting.

The majority of the songs are rather good on this one hour long album. I do miss the original band called Quidam as the new version of this band is just one of many bands who plays this kind of neo-prog.

There is not much identity and originality here. But this is still a good album.
